'Chesham is one of the largest towns in Buckinghamshire and has a unique history of industry and social reform. The idea of a museum to tell Chesham's story was first put forward by the late local historian and councillor Arnold Baines in 1981. Ten years later the Chesham Town Museum Project came into existence under the auspices of The Francis Trust, a body set up to restore and maintain the Town Picture ...Chesham Museum
is entirely run by volunteers and is funded from donations and fundraising. Unlike local authority museums Chesham Museum does not receive a regular grant from local government and has not received Lottery money or any other large grant - so the admission charge and donations are of paramount importance. Chesham Museum needs to raise in excess of £15,000 a year to pay running costs and has a regular programme of fund raising events.'
